Subject: Check out Bogie and Bacall JB's radio show
Go the the Jack Benny radio shows and look for the 'To Have and Have Not' episode with Bogart and Bacall. Unbelievably funny.

Subject: Smoking and Radio and Television
A previous reviewer asks about Jack Benny's hypothetical guilt because Bogart (and others) died of cancer. A good deal of radio and television programs were sponsored by the tobacco companies one way and another---so to blame any ONE actor or comedian seems kind of silly. Bogart, who was born in 1899 (the last year of the 19th Century)was 57 when he died---which was a lot older THEN than it is now---not just because of smoking---health care (aspirin was invented during the same decade Bogie was born , for example, and penicillin didn't even undergo clinical trials in the United States until 1941.)

THEN as now, the sponsors footed the bills and without the kind of money the tobacco companies put into advertising we wouldn't have had these classic shows to enjoy today.

So lay off the posthumous guilt-trips, huh?

Five stars for this episode of Jack Benny which is one of the best during his TV years.

Humphrey Bogart. A couple of years after he shilled Lucky Strikes on this episode, he died of cancer. I wonder if Benny felt any remorse for the victims of smoking after he must have persuaded millions of people to use lucky's over the years.

Subject: Jack Benny! Humphrey Bogart! Dorothy Collins!
Yep, Another episode of the popular TV series "The Jack Benny Program", with special guest star Humphrey Bogart. Unlike the other episodes that have been uploaded, This one features the original Lucky Strike Cigarette commercials, one of which features famous singer Dorothy Collins, who indeed sings the Lucky Strike jingle. Add to this the talented Jack Benny, and it's easy to see why this show was so popular.
